Teresa holds a master's degree in Clinical Counseling, is a licensed professional counselor, and ACADC certified. Her professional background and experience in these disciplines are key to her oversight role for staff training at Northpoint, compliance with ethical rules and state/federal laws, development of company policy and procedure, and ensuring Northpoint facilities are prepared and compliant with Joint Commission surveys.
Teresa began working part-time in outpatient services at Ashwood Recovery in 2012 and in 2014 transitioned to Northpoint Recovery's inpatient facility. She embraces Northpoint's philosophy that addiction is a treatable disease achieved with the help of caring individuals, a commitment to therapy, and helping patients realize their full potential.
Her leadership has been essential to helping Northpoint open new facilities, adhering to state licensing standards, and communicating the importance of compliance to the entire team.
"It's important to approach our jobs in a way that we're constantly focused on doing the right thing every day, all the time. We accomplish great things by keeping our eyes on all of the details and components that are fundamental to delivering successful programs and results for our patients."
Teresa enjoys spending time with family and traveling, with a special fondness for Hawaii. She enjoys golfing and relaxing at the family cabin in McCall.
